    Using hot water prevents any burning while heating the water up directly in the pot. Immediately take off the heat after spouting, turn heat low. Regulate the spouting by rotating on and off low heat. With 10 being spitting and 1 being dripping. Keep it around a 3.

    This method will keep the heat low, minimize the burnt coffee, while still brewing at >1 bar pressure. Best way to use moka pot I have found so far.

    Another experiment is to wet the coffee first with hot water.

    Thank you for this test.

    I couldn't run it myself yet, but I was planning to do it all at once. I have done it though in different days, and I do agree with you. Hot water + Short made my coffee way better. No extra-bitterness coming from bad brewing and that allows you to actually taste the flavour of the different coffees. Regarding body of each coffee, I can't see much of a difference excepting in the long brewing you get some grounded coffee in the brewed one… That's partially what add bitterness, I suppose.

    Adding boiled water makes it less bitter. Having your pot this dirty makes it more bitter. Filling halfway up the valve and taking it off the fire as it starts to speed up makes it stronger since you dont have the water squirting out at the end

    Consider this for a moment. How safe do you think that chrome coated aluminum moka pot is. Look at the deterioration evident at 11:40 time mark. Wake up people…have another cup of Alzheimer’s! Residual chrome is not any better. Stainless steel is, to date, the only safe non glass vessel inwhich to boil liquid for coffee and beverages alike. Now…where is my scotch!

    @spidiq8
    Hopefully you switched pot's rubber gasket by now. Having so much air bubbles during extraction shows that gasket is allowing steam out (around coffee) instead of just (proper) hot water over coffee. Steam should appear only for the last few seconds with properly functioning gasket. Some metal parts might also be out of shape. I can illustrate what I mean if you are interested.

    Great video! I was wondering what temperature would you recommend when using an old style electric stove top? Thanks.

    Some people like there coffee a bit bitter so each to there own I believe. What one like is to there own likening, there’s no right or wrong just your flavour of choice. Now it’s coffee time. 🙂

    I start with boiled water then place on the stove on medium heat! When I see the extraction process begin, I reduce the heat a little! This slows the push of the water through the coffee to allow coffee release into the water.
    I get a rich, flavoured coffee with plenty of caffeine! Very enjoyable and awakening!

  9. Macnutz420

    I recently began reducing the heat then turning if off shortly after the extraction is well started. It does make big positive different to take the pot off the fire once it starts to really bubble.

    Aluminum is very hazardous to a person's health
    Never use it [first coffee maker]
    Aluminum will collect in brain tissue linked to Alzheimer's
    Use only stainless steel pot

    As a new moka pot user, this is great! Thank you 👍 😊 Have you considered stopping the brewproces by putting the pot under cold tapwater? I saw that in another video.

    I went quite similar path to your discovering my best coffee from a moca pot and let's say I use your 4th method but as soon as I see coffee coming out of the holes I take it of the stove and put it on an iron kettle stand. There is enough pressure and heat to bring the water up and this makes me sure the coffee is not burnt. Cheers.

  13. Because I said so!!!

    Thanks for sharing your little experiment! People are so particular about their coffee that it's often like some sort of religious ritual. LOL Me… I start with VERY hot water from the tap then put the assembled pot onto a hot electric coil, which I then turn down to medium heat. Once the pot starts gurgling I promptly remove it from the heat, but I don't cool it.. I have very, very little water left in the bottom, but have a tasty cup of coffee that suits me. Of course your mileage may very. =0)

    Mate of mine swears by temperature controlled kettle on it's lowest setting (70c ?) rather than boiled water.
    Personally I use room temperature water out of a Britta jug, I never found the preheating method worth the bother.
    Never understood why people want to remove the darker edges of coffees flavour. Each to his own, I suppose.

    Back again after a good month of experimenting and I have to concede your method definately improves ANY coffee. It will also icrease the lifespan of fresh coffee. Its pretty amazing actually once I got the other variables to my liking. The clincher for me was that I found I could get the same balanced flavour from this method as I was getting from the espresso in the artisan roaster cafe near me. Less intense of course but the same balance of bitter and sour from the beans and the same aroma. ….and YES still good cold. That was a surprise! So thanks again. My coffee roaster is Badger and Dodo. If you get a chance try any of their beans…. the Sumatran is my favourite.

    ok so Im good with the short stop but this video has convinced me to try preheated water where before I thought it was just third wave coffee snobery.

  17. Clint Cheng

    I do hot start 'short extraction', though I do think on that last cup you still over extracted quite a bit. I stop right when you see the coffee coming out at a high speed with a lot of air bubbles and steam coming out. That coffee always tastes burned to me. Also, just running the bottom/sides of the moka pot under cold tap water cools it down nice and quick. I think a more interesting test would be optimization of grind size with a hot start and even shorter extraction. Nice vid

    this is an amazing video. I've been searching for something like this for a while. there are so many different techniques when it comes to moka and so many give terrible advice. I've even seen people saying that moka is supposed to be bitter!!!!!! from now on I'll be doing hot water early stop. keep it up man! this video should have 400k views

  19. Hendra Gunawan

    I thought u brewed too long, it's gonna burn the coffee. My experienced is when the liquids start to come out, better u get hurry to stop the fire. And wait till 25sec more, now u may pour it to the mug. Thats my opinion. Tq

    @Gregg H
    I boiled each in an electric kettle and poured into a cold base, so the water was close to boiling.
    You could just heat the water in the base however then screw on the top

  21. Leon K

    Thank you so much for this incredibly informative video. I've been trying to reduce the bitterness with my moka pot coffee and I will definitely try out your suggestions. Cheers.

  22. MichaelHaveYouCleanedYourRoomYet

    Finally someone who gets it! I see so many people giving poor or wrong advice/instructions for moka brewing. Thanks for making this!

  23. Klemen Moderc

    Hey man, thanks again for this wonderfull coffee theme video. I will try all these four methods this week and decide myself wich one is my favourite. I have never really experimented with coffe, but after seeing these videos you simply encourage me to do it 🙂
